City College subway art mosaic

The 137th Street Subway Station is decorated with an image of Janus or some type of three faced woman. It appears to relate to the motto of CCNY (City College of New York) which is located just east of the station. CCNY’s motto is Respice, Adspice, Prospice in Latin, which means Look behind, look here, look ahead and relates to the three provinces of scholarship.
